In partnership with our strategic partner, Cause Impact LLC, The Indianapolis Foundation and Hamilton County Community Foundation, affiliates of Central Indiana Community Foundation, announced the six members of the 2021 Innovation Catalyst cohort.
Through a competitive application process, CauseImpact worked with community funders to select a small cohort of organizations that are ready, willing, and able to commit the time, effort and resources needed to support meaningful innovation. Innovation Catalyst (iCat) is a dynamic program built to help not-for-profit organizations develop new initiatives that improve their sustainability and mission impact. Over a nine-month process, not-for-profits develop a compelling pitch, business plan and complete financials through integrated group training, consultation, and individual coaching based around social venture development.
The not-for-profits selected for the first Central Indiana cohort include:
- Center for Victims and Human Rights
- Health by Design
- Indiana Youth Group
- Patachou Foundation
- Prosperity Indiana
The program is provided in part through the support of a partnership with CICF affiliates, The Indianapolis Foundation and Hamilton County Community Foundation.
